What are KPIs to monitor in fashion retail?

rawpixel-252130-unsplash.jpg

KPI in fashion industry

Often stores owners check revenues, margins, number of visitors, average basket... and sometimes it s difficult to say what caused increasing results or losses. Define and follow regularily the right KPIs can be a good solution to anticipate future changes. But what is KPI and which KPI should the store owner monitor?

What is KPI

A KPI, or Key Performance Indicator, is a metric used to measure performance. Retail stores use various KPIs to measure their activities. There is no particular set of KPIs that every retail store must use. Retail stores need to pick the right KPIs based on the outcome they want to achieve or their strategic goals. For example, one retail store might want to manage their inventory better, so they would use KPIs like inventory to sales ratios or inventory integrity. On the other hand, another store might want to enhance the customer experience, so they would choose KPIs like customer satisfaction and customer retention.

Choosing the Right KPIs

Retail stores need to choose the right KPIs when measuring their business processes or goals. Each KPI must have a specific purpose, must be measurable quantitatively or qualitatively, must have a realistic goal, must be relevant to the strategic direction of the store and should be measured within a specific time-frame. An example of this is increasing monthly sales volume by 10 percent by the end of the month. The retail store will then measure their monthly sales volume and compare the increase to the target of 10 percent.

Classification of KPIs

Each business unit has its own set of KPIs. For example, the marketing team in a retail store uses marketing KPIs like customer acquisition, while the HR team uses HR KPIs like staff turnover. KPIs can also fall into multiple sub-categories. Quantitative KPIs can be measured with a numerical value while qualitative KPIs can't. Input KPIs measure the inputs consumed in a certain business process and output KPIs measure the results of the business process. Leading KPIs predict the result of a business process and lagging KPIs present the outcome of the business process.

Sales KPIs

Ultimately retail stores want to increase their sales and make more money. While there are a vast number of KPIs related to sales, there are some basic ones that most retails stores use. Gross profit, sales and cost of goods sold are the three simplest ones. They directly measure the profits of the store. Average purchase value and sales per segment are also widely used. Profitability of different brands is important to optimize brands purchasing.

Sales per square foot help store managers determine the best way to place goods in the store to increase sales while conversion rates identify how many purchases are actually made for every customer who walks into the store. % of clients who become repeat customers, customer concentrations, greatest sources of purchases: word of mouth, promotions, proximity, ads; Number of new customers directly after a promotion

Conversion of foot traffic to sales permits to optimise the Visual Merchanidising as well as the correlation of buying patterns with physical position in the store. Time elapsed between customer entry and representative greeting, time-of-day patterns
Mean, median, mode purchase per customer, per time of day, per sales representative.

There are KPIs to measure the efficiency of the sales team, such as sales per hour, salary to sales ratio, gross revenue per employee
gross profit per employee,

Inventory KPIs such as inventory to sales ratio or out-of-stock items are important in improving inventory management.

Media Features

Media features relates to the number of times that magazines, television programs or Internet articles refer to a fashion outlet's product. Many media outlets have fashion features as part of their program listings and use these media to introduce their customers to trendy and fashionable styles. A count of media features will normally be recorded by the public relations (PR) team working with the fashion business. It is also used to measure the effectiveness of the PR team.

A well-organized and -connected PR firm should have no problem getting key television shows, magazines or fashion websites to feature their client's products. The more airtime or magazine space fashion houses gets, the more awareness they get with their targeted customers, and this will usually translate to store (physical or online) visits and hopefully sales.

Usage of KPIs

carlos-muza-84523-unsplash.jpg

Ultimately, the usage of KPIs should lead to changes that improve the performance and efficiency of the store. There is no point putting so much effort identifying KPIs and measuring them if the data is not going to be put to good use. If there is a pattern arising in out-of-stock items, such as one particular item being out-of-stock with a higher than expected frequency, then it is time to increase the frequency or amount by which the item is restocked.

Chinese Fashion Market - Everyday Spendings and Consumption Trends

Comment

Chinese Fashion Market - Everyday Spendings and Consumption Trends

According to JingDong’s 2017 Chinese female consumption report, now there are some special or unconventional trends hitting the market.

Generally, chinese women tend to spend most on cosmetics, pets, food and drinks. Then followed by babies, clothes, books or furnitures. Unlike the western countries, in China, the average spent on traveling and vacations are unexpectedly low.

Female between 25-40, as always, are proved to be the strongest buyer for all kinds of products and have a stronger pursuit for their life quality. However, for the new generation, typically those born after 1990s, they are considered to be more willing to invest in themselves and be love to pay relatively high price for better products.

architecture-business-china-275247.jpg

Meanwhile, the young are more sensitive to items that are popular online or between celebrities, and also care much more about the brand name and image.

Nowadays, the steady increase of economy enabled the Chinese customers a stronger buying ower, which creates a huge market for premier brands, which sector is already getting the biggest market share in China, thanks to their fashionable design and relatively lower price.
There are some really interesting trends as well.

Customers are now have a stronger interest for participation of brands, they positively would love to join events like designing or creating their own unique items.

For another hand, unlike the traditional Chinese customers who only cares about the brand names, today’s customers starting to care more about the product itself, for instance, the design, the fabric, and the cut. They are now asking more for characteristic and unique outfits.

BMA develops 900 sq. m. retail space in Colombo

Brand Management Agency Team in exclusivity with Galle Face Hotel Chairman Sanjeev Gardiner are working on defining a new luxury retail concept which will fundamentally transform the local consumption.

Probably one of the best things to do once in a life: enjoy a picturesque sunset at Galle Face Hotel 5* in Sri Lanka, Colombo.

You feel the light wind, see the glowing red sunset, think about the scarcity of these unique experience, enjoy the moment...

Founded in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1864, the Galle Face Hotel is one of the oldest hotel east of Suez. The hotel is a member of Select Hotels and Resorts International and is listed as one of the "1000 Places to See Before You Die"

Sri Lanka is well known for its real treasures such as picturesque landscapes, rich culture, friendly and welcoming people. But for the last ten years the country has been attracting attention with one of the fastest-growing economies.

More than 15 bn will be invested...

.... during the next 25 years in the economy of the country, especially in Colombo, making it an important business destination. Huge businesses are already growing all around : financial district and the marina area of the port, Shangri La, Havelock City, ITC Colombo One, Keells Waterfront, Capitol TwinPeaks, Capital Heights etc.

Being part of the cultural heritage of Colombo, Galle Face Hotel (GFH) has started to seize this economy growth opportunity to strengthen the luxury supply in the country. A few stores already launched high end retail spaces, but these lack the complete consumer experience, the must-have for growing fashionista population. 

BMA and GFH team started to work on defining the new retail concept to satisfy the local consumer, travelers and growing business population' needs.

Focus groups realized in January 2018 by BMA team showed that local consumers spend a lot while traveling (Shanghai, Australia, Bangkok, USA, Malaysia...). This is due to a limited, even inexistent, local offer of luxury goods. There is a lack of products as cosmetics and European make up experience, lingerie, authentic luxury bags and shoes, perfumes... So much wishes... so huge potential for retailers.

All the European high end and luxury brands should take this oportunity to be first and develop its own faithful customers.

The New GFH retail space with a total space of more than 900 sq. meters will include : 

  • Mono brand high and Jewelry store;
  • Multi-brand Concept stores with Woman and Man Clothing, Accessories, Shoes, Lingerie, Lifestyle objects and Art;
  • Exclusive souvenirs boutique.

Galle Face Hotel retail space will become a new destination of Fashion in Sri Lanka with an exclusive customer experience.  Generally selected as location of Colombo Fashion Week and special events for VIP, GFH will become THE place to be for fashionista.   

The right selection of European brands will be a suitable offer for growing business population and increasing amount of tourists.

For European brands it is not just a great business investment, it is a participation in the Economy growth.

Imagine the beautiful European boutiques with inspiring selection of rare products, feel the excitement of fashionista, see the beautiful people coming in the stores and walking around to spend their time with total pleasure and comfort. 

Smell and feel the taste of hot chocolate, imagine how you seat after the shopping with your glace of tasty wine and listen to the waves of the ocean...  admiring the changing colors of the sunset from the terrace of Galle Face Hotel.

The most important, is that you can be part of this beauty!

The ironic and colorful touch which personalizes every outfit is given by iconic details like bows, brooches, jewels and accessories.  A colorful palette offers innovative combinations of orange, peach, cedrata, pink, mint, blue, china and tiffany.  Item of clothing are enriched by silver and gold touches.

Jetti is a contemporary womenswear brand that bridges the gap between designer fashion and functional clothing. Using wrinkle resistant technology in our fabrics, our pieces are 100% cotton, machine washable and easy to care for. 

Based in London, Jetti was founded in part, as a response to finding that the majority of easy care clothing was produced for men. We thought, "Why can't women have the same access to fuss-free clothing while still feeling modern and chic?" Ultimately, we created this collection to make women's lives easier.

Jetti made sure that the fabrics we chose are woven in mills that are green certified and keep a close eye on their supply chain. Produced in Europe.
